Succulent Rentals for Weddings in Phoenix | Creative Succulents
categories: favor and gift ideas, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, what's hot in rentals

We know you’ve seen succulents in wedding decor here in Arizona—whether these interesting desert plants show up in the bride’s bouquet, at the ceremony, or in table top designs, succulents are exactly what weddings in Arizona need! Considering this fact (ok, it’s an opinion but we want it to be a fact soooo bad!), we want you to know about the place to get the very best succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix. That’s right, we said succulent RENTALS!

Meet Creative Succulents, the sister company to Elite Circle design and decor company Creative Occasions, otherwise known as your new best wedding friend!

Just so we’re clear, Creative Succulents creates custom succulent arrangements for events or home decor that can be rented or purchased. It’s a fairly new concept that goes in our “genius” category! We asked Corinne Carr of Creative Occasions about her newest venture:

What inspired you to include succulent designs in your collection of rental decor pieces? I have been creating faux succulent arrangements for years to personalize the decor in my home. I have always loved the elegant and clean look of a succulent arrangement; however, when shopping for them I discovered the quality and price were not cohesive. The pieces were either created with cheap looking products or the arrangements were very sparse so I started creating my own. Family and friends would come over to my house and would always ask where I purchased my arrangements. When they found out I was creating them, many requested custom pieces of their own!

We like to think of Creative Succulents as the best succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix for a few reasons—quality and service of course— but also creativity. They will create a design in or on just about anything!

How do you see couples using your succulent arrangements at their weddings? There are so many ways to incorporate faux succulents into a wedding or special event! We use high end succulents, so they look authentic up close. They work perfectly in a bouquet or centerpiece. They can be added to a ceremony arch, arbor or chuppah. Another great place is the beginning or the end of an aisle. Incorporating live flowers is always an option too. This allows you to bring in your color pops, textures and that fresh flower smell!

Another thing we really appreciate about Creative Succulents is that they’re constantly designing new decor pieces and make a variety of types of arrangements; they create large free-standing pieces, small table top pieces, wall decor designs, etc. making them the most flexible succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix.

Can clients customize the designs? Of course! Customization is what we are all about! We love creating unique, one of a kind arrangements. In fact we even have clients who drop off the vases or unique containers they have found and voilà! We work our magic and turn it into an unforgettable masterpiece.

You’ll appreciate that Creative Succulents offers a wide range of containers as well so depending on your wedding style (or rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, etc.), Creative Succulents can be your one and only place for succulent rentals for weddings in Phoenix.

Which design is your favorite? I love all of them! I won’t send anything out that I am not proud to say I designed. I don’t have one specific favorite because they are all so different and unique. Every time I am asked to create a new piece it seems to become my favorite. I was recently asked by a local planner to create an arrangement in a copper vase. I located the perfect size container that will be on a 72-inch table and created the “Scarlet”. It turned out amazing. To pull together the look for their event they are even getting the linens from our sister company, Creative Occasions. I am very proud of the way it turned out and excited to make 30 for their 300 person event!

What are some decor trends you’re seeing for 2017 that you’re particularly excited about? As for trends, the concrete pots and also the copper or metallic pots are a huge hit. Although we love designing arrangements in unique vases, we love that industrial and modern look. Another “succute” trend are small succulents for wedding favors! Your guests can use them as decor for their own office or home. Succulents and green plants are making a huge come back and we are loving it!

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding | Phoenix, Arizona
categories: fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

romantic blue desert wedding _Phoenix bride and groom_Trisha Shelley Photography_arizona wedding

Today’s beautiful and romantic blue desert wedding shares the wedding day of Alicia and Jeff at Desert Botanical Garden. It’s clear why we wanted to share their wedding- the soft blue colors are a bit unique for desert weddings and we’re kind of dying over their alternative color choice! Plus, the couple kept their love for each other at the heart of everything they planned for their day and we pretty much adore that!

Alicia tells us how she chose her color palette: I went through several ideas for the colors, especially thinking about what would look best in a setting as unique as the DBG.  My maid of honor showed me the gorgeous blue color I eventually picked for the bridesmaid dresses, and the rest fell into place.

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Flowers: Bouquets containing blue thistle, white ranunculus and greenery popped perfectly against the blue bridesmaid dresses

The bride described her wedding day as romantic, joyful, magical…we couldn’t agree more. Alicia’s nieces were the flower girls and they were absolutely adorable!

Groom Jeff is known for his crazy sock collection so of course he had his guys wear their own crazy socks on the wedding day!

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Favorite Moment: Jeff and I both agree our favorite moment was the first look, which is probably what every couple says. But it’s true! There are so many nerves throughout the day but once you finally get to see each other, all the anxiety melts away to excitement to finally say your vows and spend your first evening together as husband and wife with your friends and family!

Isn’t this a gorgeous and private spot for a first look? Desert Botanical Garden is filled with perfect locations for photos.

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Ceremony: Alicia and Jeff’s wedding ceremony took place at the amphitheater which is a beautiful location in the Garden; the bride and groom are framed by mesquite trees and due to the tiered theater style seating, all guests have a great view of the couple as they exchange vows.

It was also important to include our family in our wedding. My brother, Nate, officiated the ceremony, with all our siblings and their spouses in our wedding party. The flower girls were my nieces, and they stole the show in their fairy tale dresses.

Husband and wife- yay!

Romantic Blue Desert Wedding Reception: The reception began with cocktail hour at Eliot Patio and proceeded into dinner and dancing at Ullman Terrace; tables were dressed with grey linens and included soft blue napkins and sweet centerpieces that featured romantic flowers, candles, greenery, and succulents.

Jeff and I spent Valentine’s Day 2015 in Paris not long after we started dating. One of the many things sweethearts do in that very romantic city is to add a lock to the Ponts des Arts Bridge with your initials on it and throw the key in the Seine River. We have a photo of our lock in our home, and we knew we wanted to incorporate the lock and key theme into our big day. Our invitations, polaroid guest photo book, flower girls’ necklaces and favors all featured the theme from that special time in Paris.

Ullman Terrace is a popular spot for wedding receptions at DBG due to it’s scenic view (the Garden’s butte makes a stunning backdrop); the spacious outdoor tiered patio is surrounded by soft petal reflective lights and up-lit saguaros. For a couple who wants to celebrate their marriage and show off the best of our desert, this is certainly the place to do it!

We asked the couple if there were any surprises or things they would change about their day. Here’s what they said:  If only time could slow down!  The day went so fast! {We were} honestly surprised by how much we relied on our amazing wedding planners…if someone says you don’t need a wedding planner, they are wrong!

 Alicia and Jeff, congratulations and thank you for sharing your beautiful romantic blue desert wedding with us!

Kristina and Chad’s Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View
categories: fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

elegant outdoor wedding with a view _Phoenix bride and groom_Sanctuary on Camelback_Jeff and Amber Photography

With their work schedules being busy at almost exactly opposite times of the year (Kristina is a teacher and Chad is a MLB pitcher), this lovely couple hired wedding planner Cara Morrison of A Day to Cherish Weddings to plan their elegant outdoor wedding with a view. The view was courtesy of the extraordinary Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa- Kristina and Chad knew as soon as they saw the gorgeous ceremony space, hip cocktail hour patio, and intimate ballroom that this was the place to exchange vows.

The couple used their vision of a wedding with rustic elegance to guide their wedding design choices; blush and ivory floral pieces added an element of romance while wooden accent pieces provided an outdoorsy feel.

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: For the outdoor ceremony, Kristina and Chad had their florist contruct a simple wooden arch and decorate it with flowing swags of white and blush flowers paired with greenery. Wooden stumps flanked either side of the arch and also served as bases for rustic candle lanterns that lined the rose petals dusted aisle.

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: Chad and I spent considerable time writing our vows to each other. It was worth every second and something I will always remember!

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: Kristina and Chad took full advantage of Sanctuary’s breathtaking desert landscape!

Elegant Outdoor Wedding with a View: The reception was in the ballroom which boasts floor to ceiling windows- the effect is a stunning view of the mountains, Paradise Valley, and the city lights as the sun sets.

Our florist matched the blush rose tones of the linens and bridesmaid’s dresses with vases of staggered sizes, each with their own flower variety including ivory hydrangea, blush quicksand roses, Sahara roses and ivory majolica sweetheart roses. Gold pillar candleholders and votives accented the floral arrangements. The candles tied in perfectly with the gold-rimmed chargers and printed accents of the menus and favors on each plate.

Guests enjoyed a meal of Achiote Marinated Sea Bass , Grilled Corn and Chorizo Risotto, with Smoked Paprika and Lobster Butter Or Bacon-Wrapped Beef Tenderloin, Pancetta and Exotic Mushroom, Truffled Potato Cake with Cabernet Reduction Sauce- yum!

The sweetheart table was a pretty little setting for the couple to dine together for the first time as husband and wife and have the best view of their friends and family throughout the evening; the wooden decor elements were expertly incorporated into the otherwise elegantly decorated dining room.

Kristina recalls: Chad grew up in Texas and I am from Michigan. I had never heard of the southern tradition of a “groom’s cake” until Chad’s mother clued me into it. In the south, the groom gets his own wedding cake! For Chad I chose a chocolate Texas Tech cake decorated with strawberries.

categories: destination weddings and honeymoons, fabulous reception sites, for your ceremony, real weddings

Elite Circle Arizona Wedding Venue Sanctuary on Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa has capped a multi-year enhancement and recently unveiled a $2 million refresh of its Spa Casitas and Suites. So what does this mean for couples getting married in Arizona? Well, besides the stunning (and let’s face it, completely legendary) views couples who wed at Sanctuary enjoy, guests also get to experience on-site luxury accommodations. This is a pretty big deal considering Sanctuary is already one of the most coveted resorts in town!

We know bathtubs might not be your priority when searching for your ideal Arizona wedding venue but look at this beautiful scene and try to tell us you’re not tempted to soak a few hours away right here. Just try…

Their spacious bathrooms feature double sinks, separate tubs and showers, and walk-in closets accommodate longer-term stays with ease.

The resort’s 12 Spa Suites, with glass rock fireplaces and Paradise Valley views, have received extensive indoor and outdoor upgrades.

The Spa House’s four bedrooms accommodate up to eight guests, and an additional eight can be housed in four new 875-square-foot Terrace Suites.

Lavender Wedding Inspiration | Arizona Wedding Inspiration
categories: bridal fashions, cakes and sweets, fabulous reception sites, favor and gift ideas, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, photography, real weddings, reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, what's hot in rentals

Lavender wasn’t supposed to be a big color for weddings this year but this pretty purple hue is making a statement regardless! We think we know why lavender is a popular choice for couples planning their weddings: it’s purple (which is always in style for weddings) without being “too purple” and it conveys a delicate prettiness that’s appropriate for any wedding. From backyard get-togethers to grand ballrooms, lavender is lovely!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: A color palette that includes lavender and other bright shades makes for some pretty gorgeous wedding attire. This bridal party’s attire is anything but boring thanks to the varied shades of purple!

Lavender Wedding Inspiration: Escort/place cards get a touch of lavender- they hint at what’s to come. And pretty much any stationery piece can include the light purple hue- table numbers, menus, signature cocktail signs,etc.

A Fresh White and Black Wedding at SoHo63
categories: fabulous reception sites, floral inspiration, for your ceremony, real weddings, reception ideas, Wedding Inspiration

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

McKenna and Klayton’s fresh white and black wedding at SoHo63 is just so pretty you’re going to love it- the bride is radiant, the groom is handsome and the venue allows for the couple’s personal design wishes to shine. One of their biggest priorities was to have gorgeous flowers and the (almost) all-white arrangements are stunning!

McKenna recalls: The most important thing to us when we were planning were the flowers. We really wanted to make a statement with the floral décor. From the floating arrangements to the massive wishing tree that was filled with lush flowers around the base, it was truly a floral dream for us.

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

The couple included all their siblings in their bridal party- don’t they look like a fun group?! McKenna’s sister created all the flower arrangements except for the hanging floral chandeliers at the reception and we think she did an amazing job.

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

A Fresh White and Black Wedding Ceremony: We had a string duo during our ceremony, playing some untypical wedding music, including Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” for McKenna’s {my} processional…McKenna’s brother, Trevor, was our officiant. Our vows were touching and personalized by the bride and groom, and really captured the love that we have for each other now and for the rest of time.

Saying our vows to each other and in front of our family and friends was truly a moment that will forever be in our hearts. 

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

SoHo63’s Tribeca Terrace is modeled after a city rooftop promenade- it provides an intimate space for ceremonies or outdoor revelry that is truly unique to Arizona

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

A Fresh White and Black Wedding Reception: The modern design of SoHo63’s Gramercy Ballroom was a perfect fit for McKenna and Klayton’s white wedding vision; shimmering linens, silver chiavari chairs and fresh centerpieces all came together to make this wedding gorgeous but it was the hanging floral chandeliers that really added the wow factor!

McKenna explains how she and Klayton added personal touches to their cocktail hour and reception: Our cocktail napkins had cute True or False questions about our relationship that our guests could read while enjoying cocktail hour…and instead of table numbers we added the locations we have traveled to and a quick story on each table about our trips there.

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photographyFresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

We loved our custom wine box with the lyrics from our first dance song, Ellie Goulding’s “How Long Will I Love You” engraved on the top. We put our favorite wine from our first trip together in it, locked it up with love letters from each other, and will open it up on our first anniversary. We will repeat this on each anniversary. 

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

This sweetheart table is so dreamy! We love the shimmer, the fancy chairs, and the chandelier placed perfectly overhead!

The Venue: We really wanted a clean, classic, timeless look. We both agreed that when we look back on our photos for years to come to have a classic white wedding. We loved the way it looked with the venue of SoHo as it is such a clean, modern space. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the white and black wedding. It was truly everything we dreamed of.

Fresh White and Black Wedding _phoenix-bride-and-groom_soho63_monique-hessler-photography

Advice for couples: The only thing we would have changed was not to rush everything, and truly slow down and enjoy the moments leading up to ceremony.

McKenna and Klayton, thank you for sharing your fresh white and black wedding with us and congratulations!
